For me, I would need to know if we're talking film scores as they appear in the movie or as soundtrack albums. The two lists would be quite different.

Same here : that why i decided to focus only on scores that have been released -- and i mean officially released. And in my case too there would have been some different titles in that list -- at least 4 ! That's the reason i didn't include HOLLOW MAN : i'm fond of the isolated track music on the DVD but the CD is just fine.


That wasn't really my angle, though. It has more to do with the two experiences being completely different. A score might work brilliantly in the film, but may not be the best listening experience on CD. Or isn't the best in the film, but great on album. So the lists would be different depending on angle.


Interesting : could you give two or three examples?

For Goldsmith, I would rate a score like ALIEN high on the list as a score-in-film, but not that high on a listening experience list.

The ultimate example is Brad Fiedel's TERMINATOR scores, though. Fantastic in the films, but basically unlistenable on album (except the theme).

Well, in fact, you can vote following the you want (for example, score or works most you loved, liked or enjoyed, or you can vote the best works in your opinion, inside or not the film). IT's only a question of personal criterion. :-)

Please, for everybody who voted here these days; if you want, you can send us an email to asturscore@gmail.com, and say us your name and surname instead of the nick name of the forum (private message). Only if you want... it's only to thank personally your votes.

Tomorrow and Friday are the last days to vote. (we extend the votes one day more).

Thanks, again, from all the team of AsturScore
